Individualized Instruction Demonstration Project. Final Evaluation Report.
This report summarizes the efforts of a demonstration project at Prairie Elementary School in Urbana, Illinois to implement individualized reading and mathematics programs and to introduce the systematic application of behavior modification principles in the classroom. It describes the development, implementation, and revision of Individually Prescribed Instructional (IPI) programs and discusses the strategies of behavior modification, particularly positive reinforcement, relating to effective control of the behavior of both the minority of problem students and the majority of well behaved pupils. Several appendixes provide data on student achievement in reading and math, behavior modification, classroom and non-classroom discipline, publicity about the project, and kindergarten achievement data.
